Voters headed to clerk's offices to vote Monday, just two weeks before Election Day.
In-person absentee voting started statewide Monday morning, but in some places, like Madison, voters will see more limited hours than in the past.
Clerks reported steady turnout in many municipalities on the first day of early voting. Those who want to vote early in person can do so until Oct. 31 during the week.
Many voters said Monday they were stopping in early because they had too much to do on Election Day.
?I just seem to be backed up with so many things to do and cover and I only have one pair of hands and so much time," said Janice Hiller, who voted early Monday in Oregon. "I decided I would take advantage of this quiet time."
"I work that day and I wouldn't get to the polls otherwise," said Paul Weber, who voted early in Madison. "I came down to vote now; otherwise I wouldn't vote."
